Ed’s World: A 30-Year Affair with Paint

October 30, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.
Philadelphia, 19143 United States

Center City artist Ed Bronstein will show and sell recent works in oils, pastels, gouache, and pen and ink at Bartram’s Garden on October 30. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Garden, the country’s first garden and a longtime favorite painting spot for the artist. Prices below market.

ed2Bronstein has been a Philadelphia fixture for decades, having studied at the University of Pennsylvania and helming an award-winning architecture practice. He began his formal art training at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, inspired by his daughter’s art education, and continued at Fleisher Art Memorial. Though he has served as an adjunct professor of architecture at Drexel University since 1983, he has been a full-time painter since 2001, focusing largely on landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits of family and friends.

In 1996, he was appointed to the Philadelphia Art Commission, and he played a pivotal role in organizing the citywide Philadelphia Open Studio Tours. He has exhibited in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware since 1993 and has also shown work at the Southern Vermont Art Center and the Urban Retreat Gallery in Dublin, Ireland. His art-filled Fitler Square home and garden was featured in the Inquirer in 2011, and he continues to mentor young artists, explore the city, and paint.

“Ed’s World” includes scenes from the artist’s travels in the United States and abroad. Its main emphasis, however, is on the people, things, and places—especially Philadelphia and Bartram’s Garden—that are close to Bronstein’s heart. The exhibit is presented in partnership with Twenty-Two Gallery; additional works will be shown at Twenty-Two Gallery following the event at Bartram’s Garden.
